Power (Recap) | Consequences (S2 E1)

In the season two premiere of Power, titled “Consequences,” fans are thrown back into the mix as the STARZ scripted drama picks up right where season one left off.

Kanon’s assassin for hire, Pink Sneakers–after ditching her infamous kicks and opting for a sexy number, crimped hair and some heels–is seen running to her car after her attempt at killing Ghost goes awry. But while her aim may have been off (Holly took the “L” and caught the bullet in her neck), it forced Ghost’s one-time blossoming club to shut down.

Kanon is fresh out of jail wearing a red bedazzled Pelle Pelle and riding passenger when Tasha calls Shawn to tell him there was a shooting at Truth. Believing his assassin did what she was paid to, Kanon smiles and quickly learns Ghost is unfortunately alive and well, which means Kanon must keep quiet about his homecoming–for now.

While Ghost’s dreams of being a legit business man quickly become fantasy, Tommy goes on a rogue mission to kill Angela, who he learns, after killing Angela’s informant Nomar, is a federal prosecutor. Dressed as a well-mannered doorman, Tommy sneaks into Angela’s apartment only to find her and Ghost’s bags packed. Tommy assumes Ghost’s intentions were to fly away with Angela and pin the entire drug business–which now consists of moving twice the amount of cocaine from distributor Lobos–all on him. Filled with anger, Tommy decides to lay low. He breaks into a safe house to collect money and guns, only to get knocked out cold with a bat. We later learn it was his crazy mama who issued the blow.

As Tommy hides out at his mother’s house in Queens, piecing together what he believes was Ghost’s original plans, Ghost confides in Tasha about the sh-t that has no doubt hit the fan. In hopes to gain back his trust, Tasha offers to help Ghost move the weight while he searches “the underground railroad” for Tommy, but only if he stops seeing Angela (the first of two “got ‘em” moments of the night’s episode). Realizing his back is against the wall, or maybe not wanting an argument, he obliges. And by “obliges,” he goes to Angela’s place where the two enjoy a spirited romp in the hay.

While things with Ghost and Angela seem steady – despite Ghost telling Angela their new life together may have to take a backseat–Angela’s a– at work, however, is on the line. Frankie, her superior has been re-assigned, and Angela, after devoting one year to the Lobos task force, has also been re-assigned to white collar crimes. With her back against the wall, Angela uses Nomar’s cell, which should be locked away in evidence, to contact Isabell, Ruiz’s 14-year-old daughter (and Nomar’s former lover), in hopes that she can help ID Ghost.

Fans are also introduced to Rotimi’s character, Dre. While little is known about Kanon’s young protege other than that Kanon saved his a– while the two were locked up, Dre is clearly on board with killing Ghost.

And while Ghost frantically searches high and low for Tommy (who’s at the crib doing lines with his mother, because you know, that’s totally mother-son bonding), Simon Stern offers Ghost one last chance at working for him. Ghost declines only to later learn Stern has bought the building and is now Ghost’s landlord. With Ghost’s in a corner, his once assertive “no” turns to a “maybe.” Back at home, he tells Tasha of Stern’s request.
